Facebook Search

James Neufeld by James Neufeld

On April 30, 2015 Facebook will officially close off access to v1.0 of its API. One of the features no longer included via Facebook APIs is the ability to search public content. As a direct result, SAM search will no longer support Facebook. Unfortunately, it seems Facebook will not be offering this type of API access anytime soon.

How to get SAM & Facebook to mesh?

Luckily, we have a great Chrome Extension and Import via URL function. Both of these features will continue to support Facebook content. We are not scraping or bypassing any terms of service in doing so, rather using other supported APIs to ensure you can still work with publicly visible Facebook content. Likewise, SAM users will still be able to embed Facebook content.

You can learn more about our Chrome Extension here and learn about Importing via URL here.

Happy Curating!
